    Had dirt on them for years mate.
    First was in '80 with a YZ80 motor in a road race kart. Was the first junior in Australia to be racing that class.
    Since then there have been one or two that got a little dirty. All good bikes. :-)

    Had the Power Bronze Sport clear screen on for a couple for weeks now, its working well and under $150 bucks delivered and was here within 2 weeks. Pushes the air a touch higher than the similair shaped/sized screen on the F8, air at speed hits about top of shoulders - low chin now rather than helmet, helmet in more clear air for me at about 5 9"

    It's around the corner from "Strawberries and scones Lane.", and just a short bit from "Pie Shop Ave."... both of which are part of BygD's Sunday brunch ride route - or, so I've been told... :augie :rofl

    The bike looks great Tory, How is the black powder coating holding up on your B&B bash plate?

    It's is probably what I will be getting when I get my bike. I don't like polished finishes and love the look of the black finish but I'm unsure how well is stands up against stone chip's ect.

    Thought I’d try Orange for a bit.


    So far impressed with the smooth power delivery, (not a whole lot of it...), very quick steering, and it talks to me, which is kind of cute.
    Not so impressed with the crap suspension, crap tyres, suspect brakes, and limited range.. But then again, ‘the price is right’.
